Band Tailed Pigeon, (type of Dove)
About This Image
Band Tailed Pigeon (type of Dove) on a wire high above our front patio shrubs. I held one of these onetime, that had been stunned after hitting our window. Lovely bird. this was taken from inside house, at open front window, arms propped on windowsill. Thought these are Protected in this province, but they are hunted in some parts of the USA, according to what I read online. At one time there was a flock of these each winter here, but since the acorn tree property has been built upon, there are fewer of these here. Just see 2 this winter. Very timid birds, due to having been hunted.
